Disney Testing Minnie Van Service Connecting Airport to Select Resorts

Since introducing the Minnie Van service last summer as a fun and whimsical way to be whisked all over property, many Walt Disney World Guests have shown to enjoy it and would like to see it expand. Based on this feedback and the service’s popularity, the Walt Disney World Resort will be testing a limited route to Orlando International Airport (MCO).

Beginning Saturday, January 27, club level Guests at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort and Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts will be able to use this service. Interested Guests may arrange this service through a Concierge Cast Member. The Walt Disney World Resort is also exploring a route that would allow select Guests to take Minnie Van service to Port Canaveral Cruise Terminal at a later date.


Disney’s Magical Express provided by Mears will remain available for all Walt Disney World Guests.

  1. Mears Transportation charges $95 to go from Disney's Beach Club Resort to the Orlando International Airport. (That price is for a comparable vehicle that seats six guests.)

    It is a lot more expensive. But, Disney knows that some people will pay extra for services with their name attached.

    I'd bet this service will be popular with a small segment of guests: people booking concierge-level/suites and people traveling on expense accounts. Remember, Disney does a lot of convention business. If you're traveling on business, paying $150 for transportation to the airport wouldn't be a problem in most companies.

    1. Thanks Alex. Unfortunately, not within my price range.

  2. I like the choice to exclusively use Chevy Traverses, but $150 for a cab ride to the airport?! No thanks. I know Disney World is only for the super-rich now, but that's just an unabashed money grab. Unless they're offering free meal service and foot massages (actually a pretty good idea) in there, there's literally no reason why anyone in their right mind should even consider it.
